New Universe Theatre Company
I'm a Lunatic by the New Universe Theatre Company completely turns its 2018 premiere and 2019 run upside down, which would easily put Lu Xun into complete shock and awe! There are all types of madmen in A Madman’s Diary 2020, and we share this experience with all other kinds of madmen in the world. A madman is not born, but made. Perhaps respect for humanity would be possible if we were to closely recognize individuals, rather than the groups to which they belong.
The world that director Su jung Kim creates on stage is almost brutally sharp-edged as it piercingly looks at our contemporary society, yet lets the audience confront the truth by asking questions instead of giving answers from pointing out the undeniable contradictions we have. Leader and director of New Universe Theatre Company, Kim is also one of the DAC Artists at Doosan Art Center. Her major works include <공주들>(2018-2020), <망각댄스_4.16편>(2017-2020) and <파란나라>(2016-2018). She is the recipient of New Concept Theatre Award at Dong·A Play Award 2017 and Excellence Award and Audience Medal from Seoul Theater Festival 2019.

Founded in 2015, New Universe Theatre Company is a group of young artists who want to meet a new world, a reliable world. They attempt to freely express in performances the truths that our age finds uncomfortable and to tell the stories of this age with our words and our bodies without restrictions on themes and forms.
